Improving Chelsea To Brush Aside Hapless Arsenal In Terrific London Derby

Sunday 17th September 2017, 1.30pm - Chelsea v Arsenal (Stamford Bridge)

It really is a Super Sunday this weekend and it kicks off with a potential humdinger as Chelsea host Arsenal in a London derby between two of last season's top five teams. It is a massive clash as Chelsea look to continue their Premier League defence in positive fashion, whilst Arsenal will be looking to claim a big win over one of their key rivals.

  • Arsenal have lost their last five matches at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea
  • Arsenal did win the FA Cup Final against Chelsea at Wembley back in May

Chelsea the Clear Favourites For The Three Points

Chelsea have dominated their matches with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in recent years with five successive wins against their big London rivals, and the majority expect that run to continue this weekend.

The Blues have bounced back from an opening day defeat to win their next three games, and they continued that good form on Tuesday night as they thrashed Qarabag 6-0 in the Champions League. New signing Davide Zappacosta has fitted straight into the system having arrived on deadline day, and the Blues do look to be a in a strong position to defend their title.

The betting certainly favours Chelsea with a home win a 4/5 poke with Bet Victor as it stands. Arsenal have bounce back from their 4-0 defeat at Liverpool with two successive wins but they are are the clear outsiders on Sunday at 7/2 with the same firm.

The Gunners Have A Shambolic Record At Stamford Bridge

Clashes between these two teams have often proven to be combustible affairs with no less than five red cards in the last six meetings between the two in all competitions. It is sure to be a tasty clash once again with so much on the line which means backing a red card in the match might well prove to a lovely side bet at 7/2 with Paddy Power.

Arsenal will have picked up some confidence against Bournemouth and then Koln in the week, but this is another massive step up for a team that struggles against their so called rivals.

They haven't won in 14 away games against their top six rivals, and as we saw at Anfield recently they were blown away by a strong attacking team.

Arsenal have struggled so badly at Stamford Bridge over the past few years with five successive defeats to their name, and only two goals in the for column during that time. Alexis Sanchez will surely start after his screamer in midweek which will give them a boost, as long as he is over not being able to leave the club, but even that is unlikely to be enough for the Gunners.

Conclusion

Chelsea have been improving with every performance since that opening day Burnley defeat with Alvaro Morata settling into life well in London. The Spanish striker has scored three goals, all with his head, and he is likely to be a thorn in he side of an Arsenal defence which can often be leaky.

Chelsea have a great home record against Arsenal and we are backing that to continue with Chelsea/Chelsea in the half-time/full-time betting an attractive price at 19/10 with Ladbrokes.
